While I am no longer counting the leafs, the current newest leaf is only 13.5" x 5.5".
Caven is currently 16 " from soil to top of pstem and 27" from soil to top leaf height. Its circumference is 12" so my pstem diameter is at 13.82".
The 5 Pups are still there as I want each to be big enough to stick in a 4" pot when I remove and pot them. Some will be gifts, and I am giving thought to starting an outside plant under a PVC hoop hot house and seeing what success I have with a year round outside plant.
